An blog by a member of the Catholic peace movement, Pax Christi, to explore the nexus between contemplation and resistance. "The Christian must discover in contemplation, and in the giving of his life, those symbolic actions which will ignite the people's faith to resist injustice with their whole lives, lives coming together as a united force of truth and thus releasing the liberating power of the God within them." - James Douglass, Contemplation and Resistance.

The Enemy is Inside the Wire
As Christians, we know that the enemy is truly "inside the wire", inside the wire that passes through our hearts, as does the line between good and evil. Our silence and inaction has been a large contributor to this war, so let us pray for ourselves and the President that the scales may at last fall from our and his eyes. Our God is a God of miracles.
